Neuroscientists Discuss Latest Research Results in Potsdam

It was organized by the Fraunhofer Institute for Cell Therapy and Immunology IZI, the Leibniz Institute for Neurobiology (LIN) and the Otto-von-Guericke University Magdeburg.

Neurodegenerative diseases such as apoplectic stroke, Alzheimer’s, dementia and Parkinson’s, which still lack treatment options, were scientific key aspects during the event.

Novel therapeutic and diagnostic approaches were discussed, especially possibilities of clinical applications. More than 40 of the world’s most renowned experts presented their research results and young scientists were given the opportunity to present their papers as well.

“From the beginning this dialogue between established scientists and young researchers was one of the event’s main objectives”, explains Prof. Dr. Georg Reiser, Otto-von-Guericke University Magdeburg, who initiated this conference together with Prof. Dr. Klaus Reymann (LIN) in 1996. “Special thanks go to the International Society of Neurochemistry (ISN) and the International Brain Research Organization (IBRO). Their financial support allowed young colleagues to participate, which enabled that kind of dialogue”, says Reymann.

“We are also very happy about the increasing international orientation”, as Dr. Dr. Johannes Boltze, department head at the Fraunhofer IZI, points out. More than 300 colleagues from 29 countries attended the event. In about 180 papers recent scientific findings of basic research as well as experiences of clinical applications were discussed.

The organizers hope the “8th International Symposium on Neuroprotection and Neurorepair”, taking place in May 2014 in Magdeburg, will continue this successful development. More information about this year’s event: www.neurorepair-2012.de
